First I would like to state that i have used the search in the forum and I've read a lot of threats.
I have the M50, IE8, creative x-fi music, Ibasso D4 that use at work has dac/amp.
I will be getting a desk dac/amp combo like the Matrix mini-i and probably a tube amp ( but that's another war ).
For now i really need some tips on my next cans. I'm stuck between DT880 (600ohm) and HD 650, but I will not discard other recommendations. Here in Europe I can get them for the same price.
I will try to describe what i listen to (all from flac, home made rips).
>50% of the times
- Nine Inch Nails
- Nick Cave
> 35 %
- Led Zeppelin
- Tom Waits
- Tori Amos (only female voice I enjoy hearing , except florance and the machine)
> 15 %
- Classical Music.
I know that you can't expect some cans to excel at everything, so if the are good for the first group I will be pleased.
I'm not a Basshead, I know my gear can be misleading. In fact although I love the IE8, I was more wowed by the DBA-02 with the right tips, that separation of instruments and bass was good ( I really got some good bass with the foam tips, the same foam tips on the IE8 makes them muddy)
Thanks in advanced, I know I will get some good opinions.
Sorry if my English ain't top notch, but I don't use it often.
